India, on the other hand, will have issues to sort out heading into the second ODI. Death bowling continues to be a growing concern. Along the same lines, batting in the middle overs is something that they have to think about. The way Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad batted after the openers were dismissed early leaves a lot to be questioned about their intent.
